HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Heathrow and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Heathrow property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Heathrow property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Heathrow property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 19th Century warehouse conversion in Heathrow. What effect will the property's wooden structure have on repairs?

Some buyers in Heathrow have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. A building's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Buildings featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Heathrow area, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. Contact your surveyor for more information.

House Prices

We are in the process of buying a property in TS17. The vendor is asking £167, 308. What will the surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Heathrow ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect property values for example the homes proximity to contaminated land or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It may help to benchmark selling prices achieved in Heathrow at the same time for comparable properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £148, 308 - £19, 000 less than £167, 308. The average for houses and flats was £145, 777. 23, Felbrigg Lane, Ingleby Barwick, Stockton-On-Tees, Stockton-On-Tees, Stockton-On-Tees, TS17 0XT a detached house sold for £130, 000 .

The best way to get an impartial property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional RICS chartered surveyor should actually visit the property in addition to factoring in any other influences that have a bearing on the value of property.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there could be some brown asbestos roof tiles affecting the house. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks, what are the remedial options and Should I be worried?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to move it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Heathrow Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Heathrow survey. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.
